I build bikes because I’m an artist and a maker. I love designing and making things. I’ve built guitars, kayaks, gliders, and now motorcycles. I love taking my own idea and bringing it into existence. Working out the strongest and simplest and best looking way to do something is a real joy. And, of course finding just the right proportions and shape and color and graphics that will make a bike look cool and tough and alive is enormously satisfying.
